fashion illustrated – wool corset
Every week (in theory), Fashion Illustrated features a drawing created especially for Final Fashion.
I got a surprise at the Starkers! show at [FAT]. A model in a mask and a straightjacket-looking corset weaved down the catwalk, pulling keys off of her outfit and handing them to the audience at random, and she gave one to me.

When I got home I discovered that the key was attached to a USB with a voucher for a free custom corset! Amazing! The options are either vinyl or bring-your-own-fabric so I looked into my stash and cut some swatches to help me picture a corset made of some lovely brushed wool that I have.
I will be posting a series on the process of getting a custom corset from Starkers!, so stay tuned for that in the upcoming weeks.
